    Will Urban Meyer be the next head coach at USC?

    When you add it all up - it's just high stress and unrealistic expectations with no payoff. Their only real shot to contend is to get lucky once in a while with a QB.

    And not being in a conference has artificially held up that program for a long time now. Stick them in a power conference and they'd be just another middle of the road program.
    Because of the challenges and the brand a coach wins a championship there they become legends more so than other places. Again IF because it is harder.

    Most part of the decade they have been a 10plus win team every season and the argument that would change if in a conference does not add up. They are in the ACC for everything but football and hockey. They play 5 or 6 ACC games every year by contract. If part of the ACC they would play 8 instead. I do not think playing Duke, GA Tech, and MD instead of USC, Mich. and Georgia is going to alter the record at all and if anything likely help them. So no going to a conference picking up3 dropping 3 would not alter their success materially.

    They get hurt by the lack of championship game is what hurts in regard to playoffs and bowls. In fairness they have petioned the NCAA to allow them to play a 13th game to address that. It has been a challenge to schedule that so far but ND is willing.

    Overall if I am top notch coach USC, FSU are more attractive jobs unless I have an attachment to ND ala Urban

    And notice that - at least up to now - Urban has avoided that job...

    Its ND's fault. Swarbrick has refused to listen despite Urban making it very clear he wants to end where he started at ND. The AD wants Kelly to coach a few more years to get Rockne's record to justify keeping the low rent fuck Kelly around for so long despite him being hated by Alumni from day 1. The only chance is if Kelly jumps to FL St. otherwise Swarbrick will keep Kelly. He rather heat on Kelly than annoying questions about his own involvement in the US gymnastics controversy at MSU, he was their attorney.
    Alumni can hope Kelly jumps and bless Urban for still wanting ND as his top choice but I imagine he ends up at USC and ND is stuck w Kelly. I appreciate Urban loving the place like others who spend time there but at this stage his life would be so much easier at USC. Great weather, less restrictions, recruits itself etc... why take on the hassle. Either school can back the truck up money wise. I rather him than Kelly but he should go to SC

    Fuck Urban Meyer. I donít want that piece of shit near USC. I donít care how good of a coach he is. He is dirty and the last thing SC needs is a dirty coach.

    Theres an entire graveyard in Meyers closet.

    I just hate Kelly so much personally I would probably be ok if they replaced with him Hitler provided he would not compromise academic standards and agree to recruit ALL Faith's and races. He displayed bias at his last gig but he is not Low Rent Kelly.

    Urban Meyer comes with a buyer beware sticker. You will get wins, lots of them, but it comes with a mess.

    Brown opened up a six pack on Columbia yesterday.

    Perfect Saturday. Drove up to New York with my wife and her parents, watched my son pancake some people on the football field, got the win, had some New York deli sandwiches, drove home.

    Football is obviously an extremely dangerous game where any player on the field can sustain a career ending injury on any play.
